This is work related event that I am participating in. My goal is to complete the 25 km bike ride and with knee surgery behind me, I am going to try!
We have all been touched by a family member, friend, relative or neighbour who has been affected by a stroke, heart disease or a heart attack. This happens all too quickly on a daily basis. Every 7 minutes someone dies from a heart attack or stroke.
When it comes to heart disease and stroke, our genes should not be our destiny. That’s why I’m fundraising for the 2019 Manulife Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart on June 2. Your donation will help fund life-saving research breakthroughs and will give us more moments with those we love.
It was always apparent that family history played a role in our risk factors for heart disease and stroke. But despite significant advances, we only know 20-30% of the genes involved.
With the right funding, doctors predict they could unlock the genetic puzzle behind cardiovascular disease within as little as five years.
Help me fund this important research and meet my fundraising goal of $300.00
Thank you very much.
